Anderson University Online Program Among Nation’s Best

January 9, 2018

Anderson University is among the nation’s best schools offering online bachelor degree programs, according to US News & World Report.

US News & World Report each year releases its Best Online Bachelor’s Programs list, a comprehensive ranking of nearly 1,500 distance education degree programs. AU, which offers 16 online bachelor degree programs among its eight colleges and schools, is US News & World Report’s top online bachelor program among all institutions of higher learning in Upstate South Carolina, and is No. 3 among all South Carolina schools ranked.

More than 550 of roughly 3,500 students attend AU online. In addition, many on-campus students learn through hybrid courses, downloading lectures and materials online so that class time is spent deepening their understanding through discussion and collaborative learning. AU is home to the Center for Innovation in Digital Learning (CIDL) and is a two-time Apple Distinguished School.

US News & World Report compiles its ranking based on a four-part formula that examines a school’s student engagement; its student services and technology infrastructure; the credentials and training of its faculty; and its reputation among its peers. This year marks AU’s first appearance in US News & World Report’s Best Online Bachelor’s Programs list.
